The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired left-handed pitcher, Robbie Ray from the Diamondbacks. Arizona will also be sending over $300K in cash and in return they'll receive southpaw Travis Bergen.
Ray has approximately $1.42MM left on his contract this year.
The 28 year-old is 1-4 with a 7.84 ERA in seven starts this season. He has allowed the most earned runs (27) and walks (31) in the National League. He has also thrown an NL-high six wild pitches.
In over seven MLB seasons, Ray has a 4.25 ERA and 4.09 FIP. He was an All-Star in 2017 and is set to become a free agent at the end of this season.
If he can get his level back to where it was in 2017, this could be a great addition for Manager Charlie Montoyo and his squad.
On the other hand, Travis Bergen made one relief appearance for the Blue Jays in 2020. He yielded one hit and one walk while striking out three in 1 2/3 innings.
